GALLERY: St Mary of the Cross MacKillop honoured in Cooranbong

Tuesday 19 May turned out to be a wonderful day in honour of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop.

On this day 120 years ago, St Mary visited St Patrick’s & St Brigid’s Catholic church in Cooranbong to celebrate Mass.

In commemoration, a "Thanksgiving Mass" was held and two memorial plaques were blessed and unveiled outside the Church. The occasion was shared with more than 100 participants including many Sisters of St Joseph, parishioners, local school students, visitors from other parishes and friends from around the region. All attendees were welcomed and enjoyed a sociable morning tea following the event.

Below is a gallery of photos from the day. Photos are courtesy of Rachel Pether, story thanks to Rosanna Suckling.
